Jihad Strikes the Bible Belt

Qur’an 3:32 - “Obey Allah and His Messenger; But if they turn back, then surely Allah does not love the unbelievers.”

Jihad came to Chattanooga, Tennessee --- the heart of the Bible belt. Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, the son of a Palestinian and an immigrant from Kuwait, murdered four American Marines in cold blood for one reason and one reason only -- he was a devout Muslim.

Qur'an 47:4 - “Do not hanker for peace with the infidels; behead them when you catch them.”

It's important to note and remember that there are many who know little or nothing about Islam who will claim that these evil acts are neither religious nor Islamic. They are simply wrong. Their collective ignorance, from the house on Main Street to the White House, will no doubt get more Americans killed.

Qur’an 3:151 - “We will put terror into the hearts of the infidels (kafarur).

Currently America is absorbing into 190 cities "Muslim refugees" from across the Middle East and Africa. Illegals have been invading America now for 40 years. We haven't had the resolve to do much about it and now we are bringing in even less desirable cultures and the results aren't lost jobs, gangs, rapes, and drunk drivers -- they are murdered men of honor who fought for their country and were slaughtered because of "policy."

Qur'an 8:12 - “Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.”

Chattanooga, Knoxville, and Nashville are "preferred communities" on that list for refugees coming into America. The population increases in these Bible belt communities has been dramatic -- with increases of 60-75% being minorities and Muslims. Shelbyville has had hundreds of Somali Muslims dumped on it while Murfreesboro has had to contend with the building of a Mega-mosque that has angered and disrupted that community. Memphis was in the news recently when a Muslim, Imam Yasir Qadhi was videotaped calling Jews and Christians "filthy" and declaring Muslims can take their lives and property (like ISIS is doing now). Last year the FBI issued ISIS warnings for Memphis, I wonder why?

Our immigration policies along with this refugee relocation program are fraught with humanitarian stupidity. Common sense tells us you don't bring people into your country who are a disruptive force. What do Americans have in common with Muslim refugees? They are not only unlike Americans; ethnically, culturally, religiously, socially, and morally, they are not likely to assimilate or become "Americanized." No one should be allowed the privilege of residing within the borders of the United States who is not first, wanting to be here, and second, willing to be Americanized, embracing who we were and who we are. Learning English, understanding and following our laws and respecting the Christian morés and beginnings, these must be prerequisites. Pouring Muslims into a Christian culture cannot end well. Four Marines hurled into eternity can attest to that.

As pointed out recently by Ann Coulter in her book Adios America our immigration policies changed dramatically in the 1960s as the welfare state exploded to focus not on the best and the brightest coming into America (to lift up the median) but rather toward a preference for the least and lowest. We went from making sure those coming here looked, thought, sounded, and acted like us, to bringing in the exact opposite. Throw in an open southern border, amnesty programs, and the fact that constitutionally the federal government is in control of immigration policy, (where an administration like President Obama's can literally destroy cities and states by pouring into them less desirables or doing nothing about invaders already here) who in high numbers become members of the welfare plantation, voting illegally (because registration is on the honor system) and ensuring liberal victories forevermore.

Is this what we want for America? Is this what we want for our children and grandchildren?

Nearly every Islamic jihadist terror group and "lone wolf" uses Quranic texts to justify what they are doing in the name of Allah. ISIS, Hamas, Ansaru, Al-Badr, the Taliban, Al-Nusra, Al-Qaeda, Hizb’allah, Abu Sayyaf, Boko Haram, Islamic Jihad, Lashkar-e-Taiba, Jemaah Islamiyah, the Muslim Brotherhood, Palestine Liberation Front, the Abdullah Azzam Brigades among many more are all groups perpetrating terror across the globe in the name of Islam. Yet, we still have those who say they are simply a band of criminals using religion for their own personal gain in power and profit, like any crime syndicate.

A track record like that of Islam and we still have people who would rather put their head in the sand and deny the reality of the situation. This collective ignorance is in reality a "religious" faith based system itself. But it denies the text, it denies the context, it denies the history, it denies the life of its founder and it denies the evil actions of jihadists.
